Gravity Whale Games releases its debut title spaceBOUND via Steam’s Early Access. Since the games available for Linux, Mac and Windows. While already having been Greenlight. Along with a successful supplementary fundraising campaign on Kickstarter.

spaceBOUND is a solo or co-op puzzle-platformer. Since players control two astronauts who must overcome deadly obstacles. All while solving motion/physics-based puzzles in a zero-gravity environment. The catch? The astronauts have crash landed on an asteroid. Yet have to share their oxygen via a tether. So if one astronaut dies or the tether breaks, they both die.
